Level 20 held its second Future Leaders Annual reception on 7th February 2019. The event was hosted by Balderton Capital and was attended by c.80 investment professionals from GPs and LPs combined. This was a great opportunity for members to connect and share their views on female participation and recent endeavours led by Level 20.
Our new Chairman, George Anson, Senior Advisor at HarbourVest, delivered a speech highlighting the importance of diversity in the industry, the progress that has been made to date and the significant opportunities for women in private equity today.
The event also provided an update on the Level 20 Future Leaders 2019 initiatives including details of the monthly breakfast series and outreach events. Members were encouraged, via an interactive group exercise, to give feedback and recommend new ideas on how they could benefit further from Future Leader events and initiatives.
